“Looks Bielsa ready” – Many Leeds fans discuss “Saiz type player” after U23s performance

Much was made about Jean-Kevin Augustin making his first appearance in Leeds shirt on Monday as he started for the U23s against Sheffield Wednesday, but it should also be noted that Ian Poveda appeared for the first time since signing for the Yorkshire club.

The youngster came off the bench at half-time, and while he didn’t score or assist, he seemed to impress a number of supporters.

Indeed, the Elland Road faithful were quick to wax lyrical about the new man after his first appearance representing Leeds United.

To be fair, you’d expect him to look good against Sheffield Wednesday U23s as Poveda has all the pedigree needed to be a top player.

The winger has been on the books at Barcelona, Arsenal and Man City, and you don’t get that far without having a bit about you.

He’ll be hoping that he can finally break into senior football at Elland Road, and it seems as though his life in Yorkshire has started well.

A number of Whites supporters took to Twitter to praise the 19-year-old.

While Poveda’s performance was impressive on the whole, some fans believe that he needs a bit more time to learn how to play the Bielsa way after his arrival.

Indeed, these fans were happy with what they saw, but they don’t want him to be rushed into the starting XI.

Meanwhile, it may be time for Marcelo Bielsa to revisit a tactic that worked very well against Arsenal.
